Currently it is thought to take 60 to 70 days to produce and ejaculate human sperm. This estimate is derived mainly from a single older, descriptive, kinetic analysis of spermatogenesis. We developed a noninvasive method to assess germ cell turnover time accurately in vivo using stable isotope labeling and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry analyses. We confirmed the postulated length of a normal...
